When Ama from Ohoh Blog had difficulty finding a lampshade she liked for a hanging fixture, she solved the problem by coming up with this fun DIY shade.  I've seen a lot of lampshade makeover projects, but this one is made entirely from scratch!  She covered it with some fun, quirky wrapping paper; since you are making a custom shade, you can cover yours with any kind of paper or fabric that you want!  My favorite part is the use of a recycled plastic bottle to hold the shade onto the fixture.  Brilliant!  [how to make a hanging lamp shade from scratch]

  • Spray adhesive, on hand or about $2 and up
  • Chopsticks or dowels, on hand or $1 and up
  • Plastic bottle, on hand
  • String, on hand

Total:  Free and up
